On July 27, Artisan News conducted an interview with MOTÖRHEAD drummer Mikkey Dee at the Camden, New Jersey stop of the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival.
Asked about MOTÖRHEAD‘s plans for a new CD, Mikkey said, “We are gonna finish our studio album. We have a lot of songs done already. It’s not finished. We’re gonna keep writing and we’ll record it next year, and it will come out next year.”
MOTÖRHEAD will release “The Wörld Is Ours – Vol 2: Anyplace Crazy As Anywhere Else” in Germany on September 21, three days later in the rest of Europe and October 9 in North America via UDR/EMI. The follow-up to 2011’s “The Wörld Is Ours – Vol 1: Everywhere Further Than Everyplace Else” will feature the band’s 2011 Wacken Open Air headline appearance as well as highlights from Sonisphere (United Kingdom) and Rock In Rio (Brazil) shows.
“The Wörld Is Ours – Vol 2: Anyplace Crazy As Anywhere Else” will be available as a digipack (DVD plus two CDs), double-CD, double-vinyl (Wacken Open Air show), Blu-ray and direct-to-consumer version featuring 2 CDs, a DVD/Blu-ray and a special booklet.
MOTÖRHEAD‘s latest album, “The Wörld Is Yours”, sold 7,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 94 on The Billboard 200 chart. The band’s previous effort, “Motörizer”, premiered with 6,400 units back in 2008 to debut at No. 82, while 2006’s “Kiss Of Death” registered a first-week tally of 3,500.
